"we have yet to demonstrate any pressing awareness, let alone articulate a compelling American counter-vision for the man-machine integration era. On the contrary, the “Disuniting of America”, of which US historian Arthur Schlesinger warned 25 years ago" 1/n
@theamgreatness@ConradMBlack "is progressing, with all the instabilities such societal fragmentation and polarization entails. One may
smirk at some of the more puerile manifestations, such as calls from CEOs and ‘thinkers’ in the Bay Area tech segment to secede from non-tech hoi polloi. " 2/n
@Harvard2H "Jam enough prospective hosts together in an industrial setting, add an airborne RNA virus that doesn’t create instant mortality in healthy hosts, set the conditions so that the virus spreads no matter what like on a chicken farm [..] and you don’t get herd immunity." 1/n
@Harvard2H "You get a quasispecies mutant swarm that spreads and grows in virulence continually, requiring continual surveillance and ongoing vaccination programs not to eradicate it – just to prevent its most lethal strains from forming." 2/n
@Harvard2H "additional bad news is that IBV arguably models #SARSCoV2 far better than avian influenza [COVID-19] quickly seems to be spitting off the same sort of antibody-evading variants that IBV does as its quasispecies mutant swarms grow, offering the same issues w vaccines" 3/n
@elderofziyon "Heine’s central idea seems to me valid [..] There are men who will kill and maim with a tranquil conscience under the influence of the words and writings of some of those who are certain that they know perfection can be reached."
@elderofziyon "If you are truly convinced that there is some solution to all human problems, that one can conceive an ideal society which men can reach if only they do what is necessary to attain it, then you and your followers must believe that no price can be too high to pay [..] "
@ELuttwak "Today, the oligarchy that controls American society’s commanding heights leaves those who are neither its members nor its clients little choice but to marshal their forces for their own exodus. The federal government, the governments of states and localities run by the Dems" 1/2
@ELuttwak " along with the major corporations, the educational establishment, and the news media set strict but movable boundaries about what they may or may not say on pain of being cast out, isolated from society’s mainstream."

HKBU who created everything, including man makeup & drives, decreed that some loves, connections are not good for man, hence forbidden. This includes engaging in acts of homosexuality, incest, bestiality.
Unbounded love is a lie from the Other Side.
@bigginsthesmall The destruction of such boundaries brings androlomusia אנדרולומוסיה "chaos, confusion, disorder" in which the innocent suffer with the guilty. Such was at the time of the Flood of Noah where men and angels transgressed all boundaries and the natural order followed suit.
@bigginsthesmall That our society / era not just legitimizes but encourages this tells you all you need to know about who is behind these pushes, even to children at the earliest ages. Now, what do you say to a person who has these drives? A v v hard test especially in our era I wish on noone.

@colebunzel@WarpedMirrorPMB tl/dr: teshuvah
"Does this mean that spacetime does not have the acyclic causal structure it is normally assumed to have? Not exactly, since in the mentioned experiments the events that are causally related in a cyclic fashion are not local in spacetime." phys.org/news/2021-02-q…
@colebunzel@WarpedMirrorPMB "major class of [processes w indefinite causal order understood as arising from unitary processes] & which are believed to be the ones that could have a physical realization in nature - could, in fact, be seen as having a definite causal structure, albeit one involving cycles."
@guillefix Yes that point is true but it is not the a priori starting point - once you convinced yourself that there is a Creator through the process I delineated, then and only then do you anchor the faith part internally, bc what is one's limited situation awareness viz G;d's benevolence?
@guillefix You are in the middle of teh movie, you did not see the beginning & cannot see the end, but you must know that all is for the good in the longer term. This is not an easy feat, at all, it's called Bitachon and one sign you've achieved it is equanimity (what Greek stoics praise).
@guillefix FWIW @YaronReuven has a whole series how to work towards achieving Bitachon that type of inner self-control and peace (which radiates both inner and outward calm) w external evidence (as described in the Torah) for the seekers. soundcloud.com/yaronreuven/se…
